100% Australian Made 

We wanted to be able to showcase the amazing quality of tools made here in Australia to the rest of the world. Given the pandemics effects on global shipping we also wanted to be able to source carving axes locally. Every part of this axe is made here in Australia.

Australian Timber Haft

We wanted to be able to show the rest of the world the amazing hardwood timbers we have available here so we have gone with Spotted Gum for this particular carving axe. It is a beautifully coloured timber that improves with ages and doesn't look grubby from use. It is super tough and with the right care will last a very long time. 

Faceted Handle

Whether holding the handle at the base swell for full powered swings or choking up on the head for controlled cuts, the handle sits comfortably in your hand without having to hold on tightly. This reduces fatigue. The swell at the back of the handle fits well into the Vee between your thumb and pointer finger further reducing fatigue.

Superbly Balanced

The balance point of the axe is perfectly located up at the choke point, making for for great control cuts and also when holding the axe at the base of the handle you get maximum swing power.

HANDFORGED AXE HEAD

Each axe head is hand forged by The Farmer's Forge from 5160 steel which means awesome edge retention. A 30 degree hollow grind bevel makes for excellent carving. This hardwearing axe is designed to last for generations.

Quality Craftsmanship

Mick's attention to detail means that this carving axe arrives super sharp and ready to use. Each axe comes with an optimally designed handcrafted leather sheath.

Couldn’t ask for better

This December just gone the fat man in the red suit dropped off an 860 carving axe. Because I was recovering from surgery it was not until more than halfway through January before I could use the 860. Hence this late review.

This is a terrific tool. Well balanced and the weight, for me, is just right. If asked, I would find it impossible to recommend another carving axe. It is the bee’s knees. Australian made. What more could you ask for?

Cheers

Almost too good looking to want to use!

Ergonomically fits amazingly into your hand and powers through. Great weight as well.

Beautifully made axe! I’ve been using it for some months now and it’s really been a joy and honor to use it. The ergonomics are well thought out on both the handle and the axe head itself, lending to control in every variety of grip one uses while chopping blanks and even doing some detailed planing work to clean things up. The weight is distributed perfectly and this thing can really take off some meat when you get to swinging. It sharpens back to a razor edge very easily when it needs to be touched and haven't had any issues with edge damage.

Aside from the functionality, it is a beautiful piece of art and a joy to hold. When next to my friend’s Kalthoff, it just looks more refined, finished, and considered. Wood is beautiful, handle bevels are crisp.

What more can I say? Do I love it more than I love spoons? Maybe. Probably. It’s an axe ready for a lifetime of use! And I’ll be enjoying it every time I put it to work.

Carving Axe Hut

Used the Farmer's Forged 860 Craving axe over the weekend for the first time.
Shaping some infills on a hut rebuild in Kosciuszko national park after the fires.
Axe is great to use well weighted and held its edge perfectly.
